Miguel Isaza always involved in the field recordings area delivers an abstract series of compositions under a certain set of rules. Those, a variety of self-imposed working structures lead to this work, Spheres.
In his own words, Isaza states that:
Spheres is a sound work created as an exploration of silence and resonance. Through granular and spectral processing of field recordings of metallic objects and spaces, Isz creates a new experience from the real soundscape, using sound as a material for the creation of realities defined by specific morphologic variations, in this case formed as "metallic spheres" which combined, create the illusion of objects building a space, also "metallic", also a "sphere".Â
The composition leaves a question: is the listener perceiving a sphere, or is the listener the sphere?
Apart of the metaphorical perspective suggested by the author there is certainly a remarkable process of work that lead to the conclusion of this album. Apart from his ideas, this album is a wonderful work full of scenarios where we can grasp the field recordings but we cannot touch them as if we werenât able to reach them. Field Recordings are there but shaded, muffled and blurred by signal processing.
